View Full Version : left elbow tweaking after heavy shirt benching

I wore my super tight shirt this past Saturday and hit a 3-brd PR. it was the most weight i ever handled. I thought it was normal soreness at first but its feeling the same today. earlier today i couldn't do db hammer curls without my left elbow/forearm feeling funny. It didn't hurt or sting, just felt awkward and unnatural. Anyone experienced this before? tomorrow is my DE bench day and I wanted to see if I could do some stretches, body weight movements or some rehab at home before I hit the triceps hard. I got ice and thinking about jumping in the hot tub later tonight.

Have you iced it at all?

If it's the heaviest weight you've ever handled then you may just be hurting some. Ice, like Travis said. Maybe some very light extensions and curls with a band or light DB, just to get some circulation.
